2018 MLS Kits

Recommended Posts

Today’s matchup in Portland marks the 100th all-time meeting between the Timbers and Sounders, and both teams are marking the occasion with patches on the jerseys, special captain’s armbands, and more:

As expected, both sides and the fanbases are also marking the occasion by displaying extreme pettiness and resentment towards each other, but that’s another story.

You guys know those health monitor things the players wear? They strap to the chest and wrap around the back. When worn with a white kit, it bleeds through the mesh back panel and strongly reminds me of an old TechFit shirt. See #4 Garza below.

This is the first I've seen of the new NYCFC shirts. They're really nice!

All that commemorative stuff for the 100th game looks great, but I am so sick of the never ending hype around the Portland/Seattle rivalry. And nothing says "deep enmity" like collaborating with your hated rival on graphic design to get printed on your shirt?

 

Yes, your teams have played a lot, you are special, just stop trying so hard about it. Also I never want to hear anyone say "Flounders" or "Portscum" ever again. That's all, thanks.

What's kind of funny, is that locally, people are pretty down on the Sounders. They got booed out of the building at the end of a 0-0 tie last week, and people are getting restless with Seattle not making any major signings.

 

So while Portland/Seattle has been a lot of fun in the past, it was more fun when both teams were good. Seattle sucks right now, and it all feels kind of pointless.

If the Sounders suck where do I sign my Rapids up to suck? The way Sounders fans are acting really promotes the fair-weather/plastic stereotype they have. I understand being frustrated by the performance of the team but the Sounders have been in MLS cup back to back seasons, won 3 USOC and have never not made the WC Semis in 10 years of MLS play.

You're not wrong. There's a lot of entitlement in the fanbase here.
